Dinkybox is the Toy Store You Always Dreamed of
Posted by Damien McFerran
A treasure-trove of toy-related goodness awaits
We don't mind admitting it – we're absolutely smitten with video game-related toys here at Nintendo Life. In our humble opinion, you can never have enough Mario and Sonic figures secreted around your home or office, so you can imagine how we feel when we feast our eyes on the smorgasbord of cute brilliance sitting on the virtual shelves of the Dinkybox online store.
Based in the UK, Dinkybox is the brainchild of Wil Overton (industry legend, former Rare employee and one of the chaps behind the brilliant Smart Bomb comic) and his wife Sue. The store is totally devoted to the retail of adorable toys, awesome gadgets and professional art supplies, and has stock of everything from Tron Kubricks to Lost bobble-heads.
Of course, with Overton himself being a hardcore Ninty fan (he used to work on the near-mythical UK SNES magazine Super Play) it should come as no great shock to discover that Dinkybox has a section devoted entirely to Kyoto's finest games company.
Much of Dinky's stock consists of rare Japanese imports and the prices are on exactly the right side of reasonable. What's more, they accept Paypal and are quite prepared to post to the four corners of the globe, so don't fret if you live outside of the British Isles. Give them your patronage with pride.
